You can use the NAP Client Configuration console to configure Network Access Protection (NAP) tracing. Tracing records NAP events in a log file and is useful for troubleshooting and maintenance. You can also use tracing logs to evaluate the health and security of your network. You can configure three levels of tracing: Basic, Advanced, and Debug.

By default, NAP tracing is disabled, which means that no NAP events are recorded in the NAP tracing log files.
